The 3rd Europol-INTERPOL Cybercrime Conference will be held at Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) in The Hague, again showing the importance of The Hague as cyber security capital of Europe after the Global Conference on CyberSpace 2015. The three-day event, taking place from 30 September – 2 October 2015, will bring together the top executives of cybercrime units from around the world in order to further strengthen their cooperation. The first two days of the conference are open to representatives from all sectors, whilst the final day is restricted to law enforcement only.
